Tree of knowledge.
This is the tree of knowledge, as we know Eve was punished for seeking knowledge, so the bible tells it. In my interpretation i see the garden of Eden as a negative space where ignorance rules, an, educational dark place. At the side of the tree, under the apple are the things Eve has gained from biting in to knowledge. She is educated, has learned new skills, and has control over her own reproductive process.
I prefer to see the Garden of Eden as a transitional period, one in which Eves biting in to the apple was an evolutionary and revolutionary act.
